I tell myself:

Life is hard, but everything is going to be alright.

Going through boot camp made life just a bit tougher, but its nothing compared to what you have been through

Learning JavaScript is confusing, but through conscious practice and hard work, everything will become clear

Learning a new JavaScript library or framework takes time but there will always be enough time

There is a lot to do on your list, but you knock off one thing at a time

Its crazy to think that we learned as much as we did in these past couple months… don't…

In this post, I will introduce an application for %placeHolders as an alternative for using @mixins.

For starters, lets look at a pretty nice scss example:

.box {
width: 100px;
height: 100px;

.box1 {
background-color: red;

.box2 {
background-color: blue;

.box3 {
background-color: green;

If we were to add the class of .box to .box1, .box2, .box3, we are successfully able to create three boxes with a width and height of 100px with an assortment of background colors. Great!!! Our code is dry and all we had to do is add a classs of .box …

  • I did a lot of technical work fixing machines and robots used for mass production in the automotive and pharmaceutical industry.
  • I quit…
